After announcing a new smart messaging app (Google Allo), a new video calling app (Google Duo), a new Virtual Reality platform (Google Daydream) and a brand new model of its wearable smartwatch platform (Android Wear 2.0), Google released some necessary details regarding the performance, security and productivity of their upcoming OS, Android N, yesterday on their I/O Keynote 2016 which took place in Shoreline Amphitheater, Mountain View. It must also be mentioned that Google announced the first beta version of Android N then and there while the final OS will start rolling out later this summer. This goes without saying that the release will be made on Nexus devices by Google, but what about the non-Nexus devices? Well guys, it seems like other Android smartphone manufacturers are also excited to bring Android N to their devices.
Yes, you heard it right, as soon as the aforementioned announcements were made by Google, HTC posted on their official twitter account that the Android N will come to HTC 10, One M9 and One A9. Unfortunately, the Taiwanese company didn’t mention the specific date or time of when the latter devices will be receiving their upgrades. However, they did mentioned that the rollout will begin once ” Google ships Android N to manufacturers”.
Please note that the list isn’t yet final as more devices might be added in it later on. As of now, the company has announced the upgrade just for 2 of its latest flagships and the upper mid-ranger. In addition to that, the name of the new OS still isn’t confirmed as Google decided to ask its customers for ideas. A major contender for the name is ‘Nutella’, please let us know what you think of the new name and how excited you are to get your hands on the new OS by Google.
